I'm sure that for an EI of 200 your exposure was bang on. But the film probably isn't a true 200-speed film, and in order to get better (read 'more') shadow detail, exposing the film at a lower EI, say 100, would have gotten you shadows with more separation. Basically, it's a film dynamic rather than your skill at metering the light, and could be described as under-exposure.
